i went on a bikeventure! :)
and when i was at work that night i was extra tired, thought maybe i just had too much sun. but then next day i was already dealing with all the runny nose, temperature, etc. turned out to be pneumonia! i'm already feeling 100000x better but still have a stubborn cough. can't seem to get rid of this bug.
since my last post, i also went to a concert
that's right. taking back sunday came back and i was right up front singing along to all my favorite songs!
made a bunch of new friends there
and also had an RT from the band! *so exciting!*

i've been following le tour de france pretty closely since it started. i am a huge EQS fan! especially tony martin! (seeing as mark cavendish is already married to a super hott lady) they are such a good team, i love their spirit! everyone is super fast and it doesn't hurt that their smiles melt hearts.
seriously. how can you not love these guys!?
tony lost his pants:
matteo and kwiato get a new job (2014):
also, their manager cracks me up!!! THE EMOTION! *__* this man deserves an academy award!
there was such a great video of him reacting to the wins but... it is gone! i hope they bring it back later. here is brama from last year:
in hawaii time, they show le tour starting around 2am on ch. 19
so i try to time my coffee breaks at work to catch the action. usually i can pop back in to see the ending... but some days morning rounds are just too heavy and i have to watch the repeat in the afternoon anyway. on my days (nights) off, i just stay up all night. *embarassed*
after three times of second place, tony finally got his yellow jersey!!!!!!!! yeahhhh panzerwagen! i was so happy, i didn't know i could be this excited about sports! he even switched bikes with a team mate (he said matteo has a taller bike and also the brakes are reversed?!??) and still killed it at the end! he held the jersey for three stages and then... had a crash just this morning. T____T i am devastated. i also didn't know i could be this sad about sports!! i feel so bad, he was having such a great tour, 12 seconds lead in the yellow jersey! but now, a broken collar bone and will not start the next stage. TT_____TT i'm wishing him a speedy recovery and also hope to see more wins from the EQS boys. the team is still strong! styby won the stage today!!
Don't think I've felt elation & devastation mixed together like this before. Proud of @zdenekstybar & @tonymartin85. pic.twitter.com/hsdJc77TK6— Mark Cavendish (@MarkCavendish) July 9, 2015
and cav has been very close in the last few days! also, rigo is in the top ten of yellow jersey and kwiato has great chances too! even the announcers are good fun, jensie is a field reporter (shut up legs!) and christian vande velde is not so bad looking either. i can't get over how bob keeps calling lamp posts and sidewalk curbs "street furniture". LOL!!!! as in "his wheel just clipped the street furniture and caused a small crash". STREET FURNITURE. LOVE IT. looking forward to watching the next two weeks. :)
here's another velon/gopro video. so exciting from this point of view!!
and a song for your thursday night
